The Prosecutor’s Office has reported favorably on the curfew proposed by the Canarian Government for the islands at level 3 and 4. A measure that would only affect, for now, Tenerife and that would restrict its nighttime mobility, between 00:30 and 06:00. Now, it is necessary for the Contentious-Administrative Chamber of the Regional Superior Court of Justice (TSJC) to pronounce, predictably this Tuesday.
The Government of the Canary Islands allows the hospitality industry to open interiors up to level 4, the highest risk for coronavirus
The prosecutor argued his decision noting that the measures established so far have been ineffective to contain the numerous infections of COVID-19 that Tenerife has been adding day after day. Among them, he recalled, the limitation of capacity in establishments and in the hotel industry, non-federated sports practice only outdoors or special measures in reference to camps, wakes, markets, academies or means of urban transport.
This measure, he adds, becomes necessary to reduce crowds and encounters, as has been proven by the numerous police interventions in illegal parties and drinking bottles, which usually take place at night, avoiding the social interaction that has unleashed the excessive expansion. of the virus. The Prosecutor’s Office adds that the measure is suitable and that it is taken based on scientific considerations and confirmed by experience.
The Canary Islands thus joins the communities that have already received the green light for their curfew. Among them, the Valencian Community, where the Superior Prosecutor’s Office reported this Monday that would not oppose the restrictions requested by the Valencian Government. A few hours later, the Justice endorsed the curfew, between 1:00 am and 6:00 am, in the 32 Valencian towns with the worst epidemiological data.
